CT-Designs Calligraphy & Wedding Stationery Video Shoot

I shot a video, yes a video for CT-Designs. Its going to be a part of my marketing materials and I couldn't be more thrilled!

Real nervous because I'm really a "behind the scenes" kind of girl, but this turned out to be a wonderful experience! Check out some of the stills and watch the video when you get a chance!



Thanks for making me part of your day and have great weeks! --ct

October 2014 Calligraphy Classes

Hi guys... I know, I know. I promise I'm going to pick it up for October. This season has been amazing. It feels like July. Thanks for the referrals, reviews and support. It really means a lot to me. 

The 4th quarter is beginning and its time to get back into planning mode. Planning your color schemes, save the dates and invitations and of course that all important "day of" stationery...

I'm teaching three Calligraphy classes at Paper Source this month. This would be a good time if you are interested in hand lettering, to come out and see if this is something you'd like to do for your own (or your daughter/family member) materials.

My Latest Wedding Chalkboards

I got a chance to do some GREAT wedding chalkboards this season. I feel that I'm becoming more of an artist as I get further along in my career and custom lettering/illustration has particularly emerged as a passion. I was asked to do a few boards for a 09/21 wedding and I was absolutely thrilled. Thanks to Helene and Danielle!

Welcome signage - 5 ft. tall and my largest board to date, yowza!

Signature Drink signage. Coaktails named after the couple's pet poodles, so adorable.

Signs to hang on beverage station - milk flavors

I actually got a chance to customize this existing hanging board for a client in California

Two Recently Wed Celebs

I speculated last year that these two would tie the knot, but they surprised everyone with a secret ceremony on August 23, 2014. Second marriage for Brad and third for Jolie-Pitt. Genius that they did it during Emmy week. Jolie, 39, and Pitt, 50, exchanged vows in a chapel at Chateau Miraval (South of France) and had their six children Maddox, 13, Pax, 10, Zahara, 9, Shiloh, 8 and five-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox, participate in their nuptials. Very sweet. No pictures of course, but warm congratulations nonetheless. They have been together now for nearly a decade, unreal how quickly time has passed.
**UPDATE** First pics released on 09/01. Looks like People got the exclusive!

DWade, 32 and Gabrielle Union, 41 tied the knot one week later on Saturday, August 30, 2014. It sounds like it was an ALL white affair. Second marriage for both. Nuptials were held at Miami's Chateau Artisan Castle. Looks like Gabby wanted to be a princess. Good luck to them and warm congratulations.
